So. This has been a challenge. It took me a long time to do, but I've finally finished wordslinging's A Lovely Apparition. It comes in at just over two hours long, and there is a slight glitch in that the background noise changes drastically at one point, but that can't be helped.

Seriously, this is one of my favorite fics, written by a seriously talented author, and I just hope I did it justice.

Now made into an audiobook version by cybel!

Title:A Lovely Apparition
Author: wordslinging
Read by: desert_neon
Time: 2h04min
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Michael didn’t seem particularly shocked when Gerard approached him with the idea, but then, Gerard had never seen his younger brother look particularly shocked at anything. He merely looked at Gerard, blinked once or twice, and repeated in a flat tone, "You want me to help you dress up like a woman."

"It’s the stays in particular I think I’ll need help with," Gerard told him. "Well, and buttoning the dress, and perhaps the wig."

Thanks. And now that I'm done, I can actually listen to your Nightswimming! :D

Oh man, this is one of my all time favourites. I read the fic very early on, when I still wasn't sure if bandom was for me and it was one of the ones that made me want to STAY.

I have no idea when I'll get to listen to it (November is KICKING MY ASS), but just knowing it exists makes me SO happy. Congrats!

It's been one of my faves since I found bandom too! I really, really hope I did it justice. *bites fingernails*

No worries about listening, I know you will when you can. Kick November's ass right back!

I'm seriously nervous now, since so many people are grabbing it. I hope I did it justice. :)

I hope it lives up to your expectations. Let me know what you think. :)

Loving this :D I was just going to listen for a couple of minutes before bed... but it's been 20 minutes already...

So yes, loving your reading :) You have mastered the art of reading at a pace that is easy to follow <3 You have a lovely voice.

Looking forward to listening to the rest of the fic, but I should probably sleep now :)

Oh, thank you! I'm so glad you're enjoying it. Thank you so much for letting me know!

Sleep well! :)

Silly me didn't comment when I downloaded this! Anyway, I finished listening to it yesterday and it was wonderful. I really loved the way your pitched Gerard's voice when he was trying to disguise it. It just worked so well!
Dec. 6th, 2011 07:53 pm (UTC)
I'm thrilled to get this comment now though! True feedback is rare!

Thank you so much! I was trying to do a lightly higher pitch when he was in the dresses, I'm so glad it worked. :D

You just made my day with this comment. :)))
Dec. 8th, 2011 08:24 am (UTC)
Oh gosh, thank you! This made me feel all warm and fuzzy and just right about my effort not to lurk anymore and actually comment places.

It just really came to life for me and I kind of want to just sit here and flail at you :D
Dec. 12th, 2011 07:48 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad you are commenting places now! It's always nice to have new friends! :D

That was beautiful. I particularly liked how you performed Gerard when he was pretending to be a lady. I could almost SEE his downcast eyes and shy smile as you read those parts.

The whole thing was wonderfully paced and I loved listening to your voice throughout. Really well done. :)
Jan. 26th, 2012 02:24 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you. You just made my day, seriously. Thank you so, so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Wow. That has been absolutely amazing! I've enjoyed listening to the story so much, you have a nice voice and I could understand easily. Oh, I loved your tone when you did Gerard in dress. And your flat/indifferent tone when imitating Michael. Also, brilliant choose of the story.
Thnaks for recording and sharing it! It mady me day. ♥

Thank you so much! This is a lovely review to get, and you just made my day. Thank you for commenting on the voices, I worked hard at those on this one. Thank you again!

And I turned off the IP logging, as requested. I'd never even thought of it before. Thanks for pointing it out. :)

Hahaha, I'll be definitely checking your other podfics.

Oh, sweet, thanks. I don't feel comfortable knowing the system remembers my IP, let alone if the LJ User is able to do so. :D
Apr. 22nd, 2012 04:06 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank you! That is the highest compliment I can get, I think. :D

And I totally understand.
